Wow! Some rain. Totally socked in. Good luck with your cottage, Tam. I'm really sorry you're going through this.

How long would you say - to stay out of the water ? My in-laws are getting here tomorrow for a 2 week visit and I want to take them to the beach at some point...

yeah, I'd wait to hear a list of safe beaches. Suzette, which island are you on? The same beaches are always failing the coliform test time and time again.

i live in nc...
this is the general consensus here...
skip the trial
skip the sentencing
bring her straight to the room at central prison where they give you a cocktail by drip and be done with her.
do the same with the guy who took her.
i am not a fan of the death penalty, but in this case i say FRY HER NOW!!!
this is tragic and i feel so badly for the father...so very sad for him.

I say make it illegal to have a child without a permit! To get a permit you have to take a parenting class, interview with a shrink and prove financial responsibility. Let's stop broken parents from raising broken children. Fry her!

And as for the murderer at Ft Hood, give him life in prison on a diet of pork fat and water. Allahu Akbar!

The punishment should fit the crime.

The trial should be interesting. I can just hear the defense about what a crumby childhood she had, yadda, yadda, yadda. At least she had a childhood, more than can be said for that poor 5 year old. What she went through it might be a mercy that she didn't live to deal with that for the rest of her life.

On another topic, spent 5 days with a cleaning lady tossing stuff & sorting it. 2 carloads to the dumpster & not done yet. How 1 person can accumulate so much junk since Marilyn, I have no idea.

No, just clearing out a ton of stuff that was stupid to hang onto. I didn't want to be in that show, "The Hoarders." :@)

The Horaders. Hubby's middle name. I am constantly asking, "do we really need that?" I haul more stuff off to the dump than anyone else I know.

Usually we're all inclined to complain about the police but I need to publicly say thank you to the quick response of the VIPD. Yesterday, my friend's car was stolen. This afternoon I spotted the car and notified the police - right there he called and had cars dispatched to the area that I saw the car heading. Before sundown we heard the car was pulled over and the suspects arrested!!!
